On Monday afternoon, a furniture truck was unable to stop before causing multiple vehicles to crash on I-35E near Maryland Avenue in St. Paul. In all, 6 cars were involved.
The truck first hit a Mazda, which then hit a Ford. The driver of the Mazda was transported to a hospital with minor injuries. No other injuries were reported.
Due to construction, traffic was heavy in the southbound lane. It is unclear why the truck driver was unable to stop, but authorities said neither drugs nor alcohol was a factor.
